Never say never in the world of reality TV. Two seasons ago, Jennifer Lopez was going through a bitter contract fallout with American Idol. But now, all seems to be forgiven with news breaking about her possible return to the series.
JLo had a two-year run as an Idol judge and proved to be a crowd favorite for her sweet but fair critiques. And after a disastrous 2013 run with Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, it looks like the show’s producers are ready to bring her back into the fold.
“[Jennifer] is very close to signing a deal with Fox to return to American Idol next season,” an anonymous tipster told People. “Both Fox and Jennifer are very about this and want it to happen very much.”
We’re sure Fox’s TV viewers feel the same way. But don’t expect Lopez to be alongside her former cohort Steven Tyler. This time out, the fellow judges are rumored to be Keith Urban and will.i.am.
